The Beatitudes of Ekaterina, Paperback/Richard Jarrette

Unable to cease their conversation that became Beso the Donkey (MSU Press, 2010), and A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances (Green Writers Press, 2015), Jarrette found himself addressing Ekaterina in a series of love poems after she suddenly died in 2014. Many are apostrophes, all unsentimental, sometimes harrowing, unflinching, yet full of the exotic spirit, joy, and humor, that shall always be this remarkable, noble, woman. Also fluent in Russian, Italian, Ancient Greek, and Spanish, Katya was a trauma medicine specialist who worked with Medecins Sans Frontieres and other international organizations. Her medical team was forced to witness atrocities in Nigeria, perform triage, and subsequently kidnapped, unpersoned, and ransomed. The poems–lamentation, requiem, praise–are visited by her muses: Akhmatova, Tsvetayeva, Sappho, Dante, Anne Carson, Giacometti, and Charlie Chaplin. The book is an unblinking, breathing, monument to love, to the other, a psalm of living fully alive on a planet under seige, and further investigation into the mystery itself which is Jarrette’s life’s work.
